RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 25, 2020)

Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. We hope you’re in the mood for some songs and stats. Let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

HEART OF GOLDN: Format newcomers 24KGoldn and Iann Dior leap from 3-1 on the Top 40 chart with “Mood”. The song is doing well across several other U.S. formats: it climbs to #2 on this week’s Rhythmic chart and is moving through the top 15 and top 25 on the Alternative and Hot AC radio charts, respectively.

Ariana Grande has the week’s top new entry with “Positions”, a song that blasts into the #28 spot after only two days of airplay. It marks the singer’s 23rd top 40 single at this format. It’s also the title cut from her upcoming album, which is out on Friday. Up from 45-34 on the survey, Bebe Rexha and Doja Cat are moving quickly with “Baby, I’m Jealous”. The entry gives the two women their 17th and fourth top 40 hits, respectively. Harry Styles is next in line, as he rises from 47-39 with his sixth solo top 40 hit and third from his Fine Line album, “Golden”. Lastly, up a single notch to #40, Madison Beer achieves her third top 40 single with “Baby”.

In the top 50, G-Eazy and Blackbear come in at #42 with “Hate The Way”, their first charting collaboration. Joji checks in at #47 with the song he hopes will become his second top 40 single at the format, “Your Man”. Singer and songwriter Julia Michaels also makes it onto the list this week with “Lie Like This”, which starts at #48, while Bea Miller sneaks in at #49 with “Feel Something”.

For those of you craving some Ocean Spray and a little Fleetwood Mac, the legendary group’s 1977 chart-topper turned 2020 viral hit “Dreams” would’ve been at #52 this week if it was converted back to current status. If any changes are made, we’ll let you know.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 18, 2020)

Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. There’s lots of “Love” on this week’s log and much more, so let’s see what’s popping at the format this week:

“LOVE” WILL FIND A WAY: Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo remain at #1 on the Top 40 chart for the third week with “Savage Love (Laxed-Siren Beat)”, which includes the song’s most recent remix featuring BTS. The song holds at the summit as record label Columbia claims the top three slots at the format, with recent chart-topper “Watermelon Sugar” by Harry Styles staying at #2 and “Mood” by 24kGoldn and Iann Dior (via the RECORDS imprint) climbing from 5-3 on its way to the top.

Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco land at #36 with their new collaboration “Lonely”. It becomes the 31st top 40 single for Bieber, who also moves from 15-12 with the Chance The Rapper-assisted “Holy”, and the fourth such entry for Blanco. TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio rises from 41-37 with her first top 40 song at any format, “Be Happy”. Following her, “My Ex’s Best Friend” by Machine Gun Kelly and Blackbear lifts from 44-38 this week. It’s their fourth and fifth top 40 hits, respectively, and is just below the same region at the Alternative format. Finally, the aforementioned Derulo is up from 43-39 with his 22nd top 40 hit, “Take You Dancing”.

This week’s top 50 is just as busy, if not busier, than last week. The late Pop Smoke enters the pop list for the first time with “What You Know ‘Bout Love” at #43, as the new Bebe Rexha and Doja Cat collaboration “Baby, I’m Jealous” comes in at #45. It was last week’s Most Added track here. The new single by Harry Styles blasts in at #47, as he scores once again with “Golden”.

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 20, 2019)

Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. Love is in the air (or lost love, if you will) on the pop chart, as a very popular Scottish singer takes the top spot. Here’s what’s popping at the Top 40 format this week:

“SOMEONE” NEW AT THE TOP: Moving from 3-1, chart newcomer Lewis Capaldi leads this week’s Top 40 chart with the hit “Someone You Loved”, which also reached #1 in Ireland, Scotland and the United Kingdom during the spring. It also comes in at #2 on this week’s Hot AC chart, topping that survey for two weeks last month.

Earning her 16th top 40 hit thus far, Bebe Rexha climbs from 42-39 with “You Can’t Stop The Girl”. The movie from which it came from, Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil, entered at #1 on the new box office report for the weekend. However, its first-week total was well below the initial predictions for it. A notch below her, French Montana, Post Malone, Cardi B and Rvssian also break into the top 40 with a 45-40 move for “Writing On The Wall”, giving the four artists their fifth, 12th, ninth and first top 40 hits, respectively.

Malone also debuts as a lead artist with “Take What You Want” at #46, which also includes Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott. It’s the latest single from Malone’s recent #1 set Hollywood’s Bleeding and becomes Osbourne’s first track to reach the pop radio survey since the spring of 1992. Newcomer Tones And I swings onto the chart at #47 with “Dance Monkey”, a global smash that’s climbed to #1 in more than a dozen countries to date. Major Lazer‘s “Que Calor” also debuts at #49, a collaboration that includes J Balvin and El Alfa. Finally, Blackbear‘s “Hot Girl Bummer” settles in at #50, one of three songs impacting at the format on Tuesday.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 8, 2019)

Welcome to Add Lib, your Tuesday report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on the station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: Niall Horan has a particularly “Nice” start this week for his latest single, leading a pack of three future hits that earned well over 65 adds during the session. That’s pretty big! Let’s add ’em up:

“MEET” ME AT THE TOP: Pacing just ahead of the competition, former One Direction member Niall Horan’s new song leads this week’s adds report at the Top 40 format. “Nice To Meet Ya” starts with 109 stations on impact. It also topped yesterday’s log at the Hot AC format, where it earned another 26 adds. The track debuted at #36 on last Sunday’s published update; it should rank at a slightly higher position by this coming weekend. (It’ll also crack the top 40 at the latter format.)

Climbing quickly at the Country, Hot AC and Top 40 formats simultaneously, the new release by Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber comes alive on the pop airwaves ahead of its official impact date in two weeks. “10,000 Hours” debuts with 70 stations this week, a very strong start that places it in the runner-up spot. Look for the single to be a major hit at all three formats through the winter.

After entering the top ten on last week’s log, Billie Eilish‘s “All The Good Girls Go To Hell” gains another 67 stations this week. It ranks in third place here and spends a second week at the top of the Alternative radio report, where it posts another 20 stations.

Recent releases by Lizzo, Taylor Swift and Why Don’t We are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

Look out for new singles by Charlie Puth and French Montana to impact at the format next week; the latter song has appeared in the top ten on the report for the past two weeks.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. NIALL HORAN, “Nice To Meet Ya” (Capitol)

RADIO ACTIVE — A Weekly Chart CHRonicle (October 6, 2019)


Welcome to Radio Active, a Sunday evening report from POP! Goes The Charts that gets to the chart of the matter: all the highlights from the CHR/Top 40 chart, as published by Mediabase 24/7 and Mediabase Research. As the leaves start to turn different colors, a colorful pack of new songs have started to fall onto the pop chart. Let’s see what’s popping at the Top 40 format this Sunday:

WHAT “HURTS” THE MOST: Lizzo‘s big hit “Truth Hurts” continues at #1 on the Top 40 list for the third consecutive week, as it remains in the top ten at Hot AC, Rhythmic and Urban radio. On the pop chart, it remains above 19,000 spins for the week, losing less than 2% of its airplay from week-to-week. Lewis Capaldi‘s “Someone You Loved”, a recent #1 single on the Hot AC chart, may start to creep up on the top spot by next weekend, but it’s still more than 1,800 spins away from the summit as of the current chart.

One Direction‘s Niall Horan blasts in with his sixth solo top 40 hit (19th including the group’s run of charting songs) at #36. It’s titled “Nice To Meet Ya” and it leads his upcoming studio album, due sometime early next year. The high debut for it is partially due to hourly airplay upon its release on Friday. Australian band 5 Seconds Of Summer moves from 44-37 with their tenth top single to date, “Teeth”, which can be found on the soundtrack to the new season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why. The recent top five hit on the Rhythmic and Urban radio charts for Megan Thee Stallion also becomes her first top 40 single on the Top 40 airwaves: “Hot Girl Summer” lifts from 42-38, which features Nicki Minaj, earning her 38th top 40 hit, and Ty Dolla $ign, who grabs his seventh.

Leading off the week’s top 50 entries is the Diplo and Jonas Brothers collaboration called “Lonely”, which bows at #42. The tune was last week’s Most Added title at the format. A couple of spots lower, Bebe Rexha‘s “You Can’t Stop The Girl” checks in at #44, a single from the soundtrack to Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil (which opens in about two weeks.) Niall Horan’s former bandmate Liam Payne bounces in at #45 with the A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie-assisted “Stack It Up”. Lastly, starting at #49, “Takeaway” finds The Chainsmokers and Illenium collaborating with newcomer Lennon Stella, who previously charted at the Country format as one half of the duo Lennon & Maisy.

ADD LIB — Brace For (CHR) Impact (October 1, 2019)

Welcome to Add Lib, your Tuesday report on POP! Goes The Charts that’s mad about CHR/Top 40 adds, based on the station data provided by Mediabase 24/7 and Add Board. This week: Diplo and the Jonas Brothers head down to the record ranch and get a ride to the top with a solid first-week total for their new collaboration. What else is in the mix? Let’s add ’em up:

THE LONE-LY RANGER: Scoring 77 stations on impact, “Lonely” from Diplo and the Jonas Brothers certainly isn’t alone at the Top 40 format this week. With three top ten hits in a row this year, including the chart-topping “Sucker”, the trio is still on fire and this track should fly up the chart in the coming weeks. Another cut from Diplo’s forthcoming Thomas Wesley project, the Morgan Wallen-assisted “Heartless”, is currently receiving airplay at the Hot AC format (but has not charted as of yet.)

No other impacting songs were included on the schedule this week, but the new radio hits by Billie Eilish and French Montana (both of which officially head for adds later this month) entered the top ten with some notable early action. Eilish’s latest single has already topped the weekly adds report at the Alternative format, where it could become her third consecutive chart-topper.

Recent releases by Bebe Rexha, Lizzo and Maroon 5 are among those prominent songs making up the rest of the top ten.

Along with Eilish’s reactive new song, the new single by AJR could also stir up some seasonal action at the format next week.

MOST ADDED — THIS WEEK’S TOP TEN
1. DIPLO & JONAS BROTHERS, “Lonely” (Columbia)
2. MAROON 5, “Memories” (222/Interscope)
3. LIZZO, “Good As Hell” (Nice Life/Atlantic)
4. FRENCH MONTANA featuring POST MALONE, CARDI B & RVSSIAN, “Writing On The Wall” (Epic)
5. BEBE REXHA, “You Can’t Stop The Girl” (Warner)
6. MILEY CYRUS, “Slide Away” (RCA)
7-T. 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, “Teeth” (Interscope)
